The County’s Performance Pilot recently wrapped its first year this fall with successful improvement on key performance indicators and a more developed model of continuous feedback without annual evaluations. Year-over-year survey results for the 450 participants in 12 departments indicated more 1:1 feedback conversations (+5%), more long-term goal discussions (+3%), and more recognition for good work (+5%). In the first year, pilot administrators focused on supporting a continuous feedback culture through processes and materials including a leadership working group, website, presentations, custom survey reports, supervisor training, and more. In the second year, the focus will shift from design towards evaluation, with improvements planned for data reporting, internal communication, and capturing individual accomplishments. Additionally, 200 new participants were added for year two through expansion in existing departments.
